Morales/Nolasco for Teixeria/Correia in a Dynasty

Postby curl » Thu Jul 21, 2011 4:28 pm

I'm in a deep 20 team, 25 keeper dynasty league. It's head to head with OPS and Holds in addition to standard 5x5 categories.

I was offered the following trade:
My Kendry Morales and Ricky Nolasco

for Mark Teixeria and Kevin Correia

My roster:

C - Joe Mauer
1b - Michael Morse
2b - Ryan Theriot
3b - Johnny Peralta
ss - Juan Uribe
of - Nelson Cruz
of - Josh Hamilton
of - Carlos Beltran
util - Derek Lee
util - Travis Hafner
bench - Seth Smith, Vladimir Guerrero, Nyjer Morgan, Adam LaRoche, Kendry Morales

SP - Jon Lester
SP - Francisco Liriano
SP - Ricky Nolasco
SP - Ryan Dempster
SP - Jake Peavy
SP - Jeremy Guthrie
SP - Tyler Chatwood
SP - Juan Nicasio
SP - Barry Zito
SP - Jason Hammell

RP - Mike Adams
RP - Matt Capps
RP - Joaquin Benoit
RP - Heath Bell
RP - Jose Valverde
RP - Jason Isringhausen
RP - Matt Thornton

I'm currently in 6th place out of 20 (top 8 make the playoffs). I'm always a big fan of playing for this year over next year whenever possible, but oftentimes this forces me to make mistakes (I traded Pineda during this offseason for some role players because I didn't think he'd be up this year, and I've regretted it all year). Is this one of those mistakes? Or am I putting too much faith in Morales returning to his 2009 form after missing most of the last 2 seasons?

Grab Teixeira. Huge boost for your offence this season and Correia is serviceable.

Morales hasn't played for like 2 seasons now.

A no brainer for me.

Agreed with the above, easy accept here. Teix is the best player by a wide margin.
